It’s Day Two here in Venice and we’re learning a ton. Between gondola rides and stops for gelato, we’re taking time to go over photo tips like the one I shared with you yesterday — watching out for distortion in architecture shots. It’s easy when you’re traveling in a place like Europe, where the streets are narrow and the buildings have tall spires, to get a lot of distortion in your photos. See yesterday’s post for what to do about it, here. However, sometimes you just can’t avoid it… and that’s where processing programs like Photoshop and Lightroom come in handy. Here’s a quick video from Rich on how to fix a photo (using Lightroom) of a building that looks like it’s falling over backwards… When you make distortion corrections in Lightroom, be gentle with the sliders. We’re used to seeing some distortion — it’s the way we see the world. So be careful not to over-correct. Tomorrow, we’re taking a gondola ride through some of the lesser-known canals in Venice, keeping our eyes peeled for colorful reflections on the water and colorful characters walking along the sides of the canals. Stay tuned for some of my favorite shots from this trip and some attendee photos, too. — Lori Lori Allen Director, Great Escape Publishing [Editor’s Note: Learn more about how you can turn your pictures into cash in our free online newsletter The Right Way to Travel.  Sign up here today and we’ll send you a new report, Selling Photos for Cash: A Quick-Start Guide, completely FREE.]
